Hello Everyone,

I am so thrilled that I just had to share. Today I had a crown lengthening/gum lift surgery to correct very tiny teeth and a gummy smile. I can't believe the difference in my smile already. I have to wait 2 months for the gum tissue and bone to heal and then I will get 6 Feldspathic veneers on the top front teeth.

I have always hated my tiny teeth and gummy smile and at 57 am just now taking care of it. I would have done this years ago, but could not find the best Periodontist and Cosmetic Dentist.

The procedure was about 3 hours and I was getting restless towards the end but I have not experienced any pain so far. We shall see what happens in the next few days. The Periodontist placed tan colored dissolvable stitches that are barely visible and my gums are a bit swollen and purple in color. There are some very large gaps in the front teeth that will be covered with the veneers.

At this point, I am so happy that I did this procedure and am looking forward to the veneers in 2 months. I do have to live with strange looking teeth for awhile, but it will definitely worth it.

Would love to hear other's experiences with gum surgery and/or veneers.

I'm happy to hear that you had a good experience with this. My daughter wants to do this when she's older because he teeth are so tiny, too. She's only 17, so not for a long while yet.

I would love for my husband to get veneers though. As he's aged, he teeth have gotten separated to the point where you can almost stick a half of a tooth in the gaps. Laughing Maybe when we win the lottery because he needs around 12 veneers.

Hope the next 2 months fly by for you. Very Happy

Veneers are great for small and badly damaged teeth, but I reckon orthodontics would be the way to go for your husband's teeth.

This is a lovely site explaining adult orthodontics - think Tom Cruise! http://www.archwired.com/

Thanks for that site, Hippome. But, along with the gapping of his teeth, he has also grinded them down to flat little stubs (he now wears a mouth guard). I saw pictures of his teeth in his youth and they were GORGEOUS! How could he not have taken been care of them and gotten a mouth guard 35 or so years ago is beyond me. So getting braces would only solve half the problem. Veneers would kill two birds with one stone. Razz

Glad to hear you had a good experience with this procedure. A great smile can make all the difference in the world in our appearances.

Hopefully Sister sweets responds to this thread as dentistry is her field of work.

My dentist said that as we age our teeth move forward and out. I've noticed that with my own. I can no longer bite down on a piece of paper and hold it. It slips out. I don't want to get braces though.
